Good morning or afternoon!


So far this week has been pretty average. I still don't have the medicine that my arthritis specialst wrote for me. Monday will make it 3 weeks. I'm tired of having to do the pharmacy's job by having to call the doctor. The pharmacy told me that they've called 3 times. Thats when I called them yesterday! I've been calling everyother day as of yesterday! So, I've chosen to give up on ever getting my new medicine! It's just NOT worth all of this.


I've been having a lot of problems with urinating and empting my bladder. It feels like I'm pregnant all over again! (I'm not, had it all removed) I told my nurse on Thursday about it. She called my nurse practioner and sometime today before noon, she's ( my nurse ) is coming over for a urin sample and then putting a cathader (sp) in to see if I am empting it, and that if it's just a 'feeling' I'm having. I'd like to have the cathader in for a few weeks. This is a miserable feeling to go through or to have. I've never had a urinary tract infection or anything like that ever in my life, so I don't know how that feels. Things seem to go so much quicker with the nurse prationer, she doesn't have to see me all the time in a few weeks time, since I've just been there. So on this line, it's going faster for me. Thats a good thing. I am still battleing that sinus infection. I'm out of the elixur and almost out of my pills. I called them in for a refill ( they have 2 more) And they told me and my nurse that it's 1 week too early! I showed my nurse how many times I'm suppose to take them and how much I have left and how it is impossible for it to be 1 week too early. She agreed! She was able to get the refills to be filled on Monday for me. I'm thankful for that. Sometimes I'm up late and I will still follow the directions; as in take every 6 hours, I still will. So, now I'm having to go without these two antibiotics until Monday! Gee...I wonder why I'm not getting any better! I have to keep them in my system or they will not work.


My daughter and I went Christmas shopping again last night. Her husband came along. :o) That was fun! dh was watching Kayden while we were out. I can only be out for a about 2 hours, then I'm done, and ready for bed. No energy left at all. I'm almost done. I have just one more person left and I'm going to get that today so I'll be done. :o) My son has been doing all of the Christmas wrapping for me. I really appreciate it too! Everyone that knows me that I absolutly love to wrap gifts and it takes a lot for me to let someone else do it for me. Dh wraped my sons gifts. So thankful. I just can't do it anymore. It upsets me. It's something that I've enjoyed doing since I helped my grandma every year. She would give me a quarter for helping her. :o)

Jason put Kayden's horse together instead of wrapping it. It was the largest. We had a hard time finding a place to hide it..lol. So, I seen a place in here that it could slide in and we covered it with a blanket! I told Dh that he's too smart and he'll notice that this wasn't here the last time he was! Yesterday I went to get my daughter and Kayden because she wasn't feeling well. The minute we came in this room, he took the blanket off! lol Just to hear his gasp! :o) It was so sweet to see him! So, pulled it out and put it in the living room so he could bounce on it! :o) It was so adorable! He loves it! :o) After all of that, we all layed down in my bed and took a nap! Man...it was great to feel my snuggle bunny! I got in first because of my oxygen tubes and then he and my daughter. :o) I was out quick! lol Kayden and I slept until I think it was almost 7:00 pm.! Wow! lol He can put me right to sleep and keep me asleep! lol I'm sawing logs and he's sawing twigs! :o)


I think I'll end this. I hope my nurse comes soon so I can get this over with. :o)
Please be safe and keep warm!

I'm sorry you've been landed with yet another complication, Lisa. And I'd be very cross with the doctor - complaint is something worth considering. On the other hand, it's a lot of hassle. Thanks for your card :-)

I'm getting frustrated for you.  Why can't these people get your medication straight and go the extra mile for you?  It isn't asking to much to hope that people would actaully care about other people.  Have a wonderful weekend Lisa.  Luv ya!

Can you change Pharmacys? If so, I would!!! I'd also give the Dr a peice of my mind!
Glad you have your Nurse, tell her to get with the Dr & Pharmacy & make things happen!!!
Catheter, hope you don't need one...but then I know how you feel. Sometimes I wish I had one! grrr Hopefully if you have a UTI they can give you some meds for it.
Have a good weekend & a wonderful Christmas!
Hugs,
Sugar

He's going to love Christmas even if he did spot one present right away, but he sure fits the title little drummer boy.  I am so glad that he is a snuggle bunny.  I know how that feels  Also it was good to get an update on what is going on with you.  I have been wondering but just haven't been able to make it over here.  Have a good one now.  Gerry

Lisa, I am so sorry you have more problems.  You are in my prayers.  I do not think I was privy to your other journal, and you have blocked me from your email. I don't understand. Cound you just tell me why?  I thought I was being a Christian friend to you.  I have had a roung time lately, too. But that's not why I am writting this.  I want to know why did I get cut out of your life?
